See over 120 Chinese jades, metalware, and ceramics from the Sackler gift including 2 fearsome ceramic guardian figures of the Tang dynasty; dragons and chimera; and 10 small jade birds, bears, elephants, and creatures representing the creatures of the Chinese zodiac.

Because this exhibition is directed toward children's interests, as well as toward adults, steps and railings have been provided so that young visitors will be able to view the art.
